Planet members and their kids serving in Iraq and Afghanistan need our support.

I know of one member of Chiefs Planet getting ready to go to Afghaniastan. I know
another that has a son getting ready to deploy. Another that has a son already there. I propose that we raise money and ship some "goddies" over to the units where Chiefs Planet members or their kids are serving our country. To let them know they are not alone, that some of us back here in the USA appreciate their sacrifice and service.

I will personally pay all the shipping costs and coordinate the project.

I will pay all the paypal fees of the members who donate. If you donate $20 to buy goodies for the troops, $20 goes to the troops.

If you want to send a check, or some goodies yourself, donated items, PM me for a mailing address.

If you have a store that has items that would go in the care package and would sell those at cost and or donate, PM me.

100% of the money raised will go to purchase items for the troops. I will update this thread with the progress and post pictures of the "goodies" and items that will be shipped to the troops.

This is not a political thread or idea. The point is to support the Planet members or their kids on a personal level while they are voluntarily putting themselfs in harms way for us.

PM me for the paypal address. If you know of someone serving overseas, PM me and we will put them on the list to recieve a care package

Hey BRC,

A few days after my wife checked with her brother's wife about this package, he was injured in an IED attack and sent home for medical treatment. Today we learned that his driver and the guy who took his place were both killed by an IED. It's a tough job these guys have (both in terms of personal risk and also in terms of dealing with the loss of close friends).

Thanks again for all the support you facilitate!

In some of the worst times I've ever experienced, a small note or package surprising me made the difference between being depressed and feeling validated. Agree or not for the reasons we're there, coming together and supporting the troops with their boots on the ground is a profound statement, and it does not go un-noticed by the troops receiving the packages. Don't make fun of what I'm saying, never in my life has a simple gesture made me feel so good and happy to be an american. Keep donating if you feel inclined, it matters more than you know to the troops receiving it.

Yeah, no doubt. They work hard out there and need some support to boost morale. I can see the day coming when my brother will be deployed. I used to just skip the headlines relating to the war, because it gets a little repititive. But for people with family over there, I would guess that that's the most important thing all day.

I've been chatting with my brother....he says the thing he misses the most right now is hunting.

He says Hunting Videos would be a good thing for any outdoorsmen....I know several of the pros, so I'll see if I can get some videos donated

I can't guarantee anything, but I'm going to ask.

You might put that down for things to buy though. You can buy them in sets....I saw a collection on craigslist the other day for pretty cheap too.

I hadn't thought of it, but at least my brother is having whitetail withdrawls. I'm sure the other hunters are too.

Which is best, and easiest for you?

I'd be happy to Paypal some $$, send a check or buy some items.

If Paypal is best, PM me and I'll contribute.

I realize your new here but we don't post "joke" posts in a sticky or a serious thread. Your penalty for this violation is $20 for the troops.

PM me your paypal and I'll see what I can do.

I just read that the Amazon Kindle now works internationally. I wish there was a way we could afford to buy a couple of those for the troops. Unfortunately they are about $300. I know the prospect of unlimited books would be nice.

As to Iowanian's suggestion of grass seed and dirt. That is popular, at least it was among my friends. Something about having a little piece of America to take care of while in the sand box was a comforting thought.

I wish you guys could hear that stories I'm hearing about this thread. My best friend, my brother, my in-law etc. is heading over there, is already over there. Worried about them etc. Gut wrenching personal stories. And then there is ones like this....

Hey BRC. This is edited name. God bless the troops and thanks for what you are doing. This is the money I was going to use as a reward for my lost puppy dog. The kind woman that found him refused the reward, so I figure this is a good alternative.


Total so far...$85 in hand. More have promised funds in the future.

We did this over the last year at our church for soldiers from the area that were overseas. If you haven't found out already, I can get the list of suggested items we went by.

Also several of the soldiers said coffee was always appreciated. You can get foldgers and maxwell house coffees in tea bag form so that they can make coffee with a cup of hotwater and not have it taste like instant. Another thing that we popular is wet-wipes. Kid out of our church who spent 2 tours in Iraq said, especially on the first tour they could go several weeks without a shower (or running water for that matter) and the wet wipes were the only he could clean up.

Yeah, I've started to get feedback from members who have family over there privately and doing some research it looks like Coffee, tea, instant flavored drinks of any kind and those baby wipes are the most popular items. Also not a lot of feedback but those who have offered or experienced it say Iowaian's idea of potting soil and some seeds goes over real big with the troops also. I could use those USPS boxes that doesn't matter about weight but based on size to ship the potting soil.

Decent toiletpaper, Charmin, IIRC, makes a little travel pack that is easy to put in your cargo pocket and keep with you. They don't call the gov't issue stuff "John Wayne" for nothing.

Heh, “rough on your ass and don’t take shit off nobody.”


Wet wipes is another prized item.
